Europe

For Europe, the ECR 2021, Vienna (ONLINE), Austria, 03/03/2021-07/03/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) for a maximum of 40 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she has actually spent in the educational activity.

Please note that the number of CME credits may differ from the maximum number of credits your national jurisdiction approves for your continuous medical education. For more information, see CME CONFIRMATION.

The Österreichische Ärztekammer (Austrian Medical Chamber) has granted a maximum of 50 DFP (Diplom-Fortbildungs-Programm der Österreichischen Akademie der Ärzte) credits for the ECR 2021 LIVE programme (March 3-7).

Through an agreement between the UEMS and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1), as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
